Winter Photography


 Since I'm going to be heading up a free winter photography workshop on February 5th for the Delaware Preservation Parks, I thought I would ask here what winter photography problems, issues, or questions that you might have that might help guide my upcoming workshop.  I've thought a ton of things already, but I can't think of everything.  Please feel free to share any winter photography tips or questions with a comment.  Thanks!

  1. Probably super obvious, by my camera freaks out in the cold: I think the batteries get too cold, and it just quits. So, best way to store your camera in the cold so it's NOT cold, but readily accessible and not fogged up.

  2. Definitely! Keep batteries warm, and once you come in from the cold into a warm room, your camera will be out of action for a while until it de-fogs. If you put your camera in a plastic bag outside, and then bring the camera into the warm environment inside the bag, it won't fog up, and you can take the camera out of the bag once the inside air warms up to room temperature. Doing this eliminates the risk from condensation zapping your electronics!

  3. Keep the batteries warm and don't blow near the lens. The condense will freeze and damages your camera or at least spoil your photos.
